The Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu has served strong notice to the Paramount Chief of Dormaa, Osagyefo Oseadeeyo Agyemang Badu II.
Otumfuo speaking at the first meeting of the Asanteman Traditional Council, stated that he will not allow the authority of the Asantehene be undermined under his watch.
“It is not in my time. If you say you are a man, I am also a man. If that is how it will be then we will face-off. I can’t talk anyhow because I was brought up well. I was brought up well so I talk with decorum. If chieftaincy has been bestowed on you and you don’t have sense calm down and let’s address issues on the tenets of history,” the Otumfuo fumed.
The comment by the Asantehene comes on the back of a recent outburst by the Dormaahene accusing the people of Ashanti of twisting history in their favour.
But speaking to his chiefs at the meeting, Otumfuo noted that it was rather the Paramount Chief of Dormaa who is twisting history to fuel his sense of independence.
